    What exactly is the ‘coronavirus’?

    How worried do we need to be?

    Given the poor communication so far by government health organizations and the media, the severity of the situation and the risk to public health, Chris Martenson filmed this important explanatory video hours ago.

    In it, Chris explains the virus in layman’s terms, why the contagion we’re seeing is likely to spread substantially from here, and why the actions being taken so far by public health officials to contain the threat are woefully insufficient.

    The coronavirus is currently sweeping across China. So far, it has all the hallmarks of a potential true pandemic outbreak.

    While it could still (and hopefully will) be contained and burn itself out, the chances of that are slipping by the hour.

    If an actual pandemic breaks out, expect the following to happen quickly…

    CSI: US Equity “Markets”

    Analyzing the crime scene the stock market has become

    What happened last night — the Fed money hose connected to the Trump admin’s use of Bloomberg to pump out another China trade rumor — is really a crime scene.

    I’m not sure which bothers me the most, that it happened again, or that it worked again. Neither speaks very highly for the integrity of the system.

    The US Federal Reserve currently believes they are doing “good” by preventing downturns and sending asset prices higher.

    But in reality, they’re setting the stage for a very disappointing future. Perhaps even a violent one.

    Did Everything Just Change?

    How material are this week's QE & China deal announcements?

    With this week’s twin announcements of new QE and a partial China trade agreement, the bulls are suddenly having the time of their lives.

    So, does this mean happy days have returned? Have we been rescued from the mountain data warning of an economic slowdown and lower asset prices? Does the Fed — and now China, too — have our back again?

    Is it time for investors to become optimistic once more?

    Off The Cuff: Economic Crosscurrents

    Slowing down? Or heating up? The economy is sending mixed signals.

    In this week’s Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Axel Merk discuss:

    • The latest developments in the repo market
    • Why the Fed should do less, not more
    • The concern of an overheating economy
    • The Saudi strike showed the world is much less safe than we all thought

    Axel explains how the Fed is intervening to quell the recent troubles in the overnight repo market. And while that issue highlights weakness in one corner of the economy, he also sees a risk of it overheating should a trade deal with China be reached by the end of the year.

    This is why today’s environment is so maddening for those trying to make sense of it. There are so many crosscurrents working at odds right now, it’s very challenging to know which direction will win out, and for how long:

    For those paying attention, there have been plenty of signs indicating that financial asset prices are dangerously overvalued and that the decade-long economic expansion is reversing towards recession.

    But the mainstream — until just recently — has refused to see this.

    Martin Armstrong: Dow 35,000 By 2021?

    Given the current capital flight into the US, it could happen

    The most hated stock market rally still has room left to become truly despised, according to Martin Armstrong.

    With so much of the rest of the world beginning to succumb to the arriving global recession, capital is fleeing towards the relative safety and positive returns offered by America’s financial markets. As a result, Armstrong sees the US stock market continuing to power higher from here, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average potentially tagging 35,000 by 2021.
